Chocolate Coconut Cream Pie starts with chocolate ganache on top of a flaky crust. It’s layered with a creamy filling and toasted coconut, then garnished with homemade whipped cream to make the best coconut cream pie you’ve ever tasted!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 refrigerated pie crust, thawed
  • 6 oz. dark baking chocolate
  • 2 Tbsp. heavy cream
  • 1 (3.4 oz) box vanilla instant pudding
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 (16 oz) carton heavy cream
  • 2 Tbsp. confectioner’s sugar
  • 2 cups flaked coconut, toasted

Instructions

CRUST

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Place the thawed crust in a 9″ pie plate and crimp edges all the way around.
  3. Prick several holes in the bottom of the crust, then bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes. Allow pie to cool for at least 10 minutes. 

CHOCOLATE GANACHE

  1. Chop chocolate into small pieces. Add heavy cream, then microwave in 30 second intervals until melted.
  2. Stir frequently until mixed well, then spread on top of baked and cooled crust. 

CREAMY FILLING

  1. Add milk to a bowl and sprinkle in vanilla pudding. Whisk until set.
  2. Pour the carton of heavy cream into a mixing bowl. With a mixer, beat until stiff peaks form.  
  3. Add confectioner’s sugar and stir a few times.
  4. Fold half of the whipped cream into the pudding and stir until creamy. Reserve the other half for topping. 

TOASTED COCONUT

  1. Spread coconut onto a half sheet pan and bake in 300 degree oven for 5 minutes, stirring frequently while cooking. Watch it to make sure it doesn’t burn. 
  2. Take out of the oven and stir well. Add 1-1/2 cups of toasted coconut to filling and stir well. Reserve the rest of coconut for topping. 

WHIPPED TOPPING AND GARNISH

  1. Spread the remaining whipped topping on top of the filling and garnish with remaining toasted coconut. Add chocolate in the center if desired.
